Is there an urgency to fixing the failure that makes it worth putting in code that
we think we’ll be taking back out later?  (Perhaps even sooner than later?)  I’m
not suggesting there isn’t, just wondering if there is.  I also think it might not
be all that difficult, but of course I haven’t actually done the work to prove that!
